Music City Memo Features Cash Crawford's "Mistakes"


The Powerful Value of Mistakes Normalized by Cash Crawford

“There’s something other-worldly about Cash Crawford’s music, and her new single doesn’t disappoint. The perfect blend of great energy and magic that very few have been able to do. She’s Nashville’s modern day Stevie Nicks.” – Karina Michel, Rolling Stone writer, Author of “Meet Nashville’s Rising Stars.”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Rising star Cash Crawford releases her timely new single, “Mistakes.” As an artist, she speaks to the complexity of making mistakes and the outcome of learning, growing, and becoming more resilient in the process. Throughout the track, Cash sings her heart out with powerful vocal delivery. Her self-love journey continues as she explores how failure can often lead to life’s fundamentals of success. The singer represents a positive light and understanding of how we can challenge ourselves to consider our mistakes a second chance.

We live in a world that faces canceled culture instead of letting people understand and progress from their shortcomings. ‘I won’t hesitate. So don’t you make me wait? I just want to shake you awake. So put me on a stage. Riot til we rage. Cause we are just the chances, we take. Make some mistakes.’ Cash says, “Mistakes is a song I’m really proud of. Not only did I really get to dig in and showcase what my voice can do, but I also got to voice my opinion on cancel culture.” Our lives are filled with mistakes, but the key is to be willing to make more and see it as an opportunity for discovery.

After receiving raving reviews for her latest single, “Save Myself,” and having the music video featured on CMT Online, Cash was praised for her honest lyrics as well as the importance of accepting one’s imperfections. “At first, I was apprehensive about using the line “make some mistakes” because I was concerned that it might be misinterpreted, but after mulling it over with my co-writer Don Miggs, he helped me see that it was a chance for us to change the stigma around the world. Mistakes are good,” says Cash.

The gypsy southern rock singer focuses on living a life with a fresh opportunity. Through this song, Cash reveals her personal journey and acknowledges the inevitable mistakes we all make. Cash adds, “They’re healthy, and as long as you learn from them, they’re helping you grow. They are not grounds to become cancel. The only ‘canceling’ we should be doing is canceling cancel culture.”

Instead of running away, Cash perfectly tells a story of what wouldn’t change when hiding from your wrongdoing. As times change, people’s sense of values also changes in the process to fit the social standard. As the singer-songwriter continues to evolve, it is a state of mind, something that you are willing to do more of in life because it has progressed you to where you are today.

Cash Crawford is no stranger to the music industry, spending over 20 years as a noteworthy vocalist, songwriter, and entertainer. As an artist, she has earned Rising Star, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Song of the Year Nominations for her solo projects. Cash won Best Singer-Songwriter at the Toronto Indie Music Awards in 2012 and 2013. In 2019, Cash released “Stevie,” her single written about her idol Stevie Nicks, with David Tolliver. This past May, she released “Save Myself,” and now Cash is set to release “Mistakes” on Friday, October 21st.
